Sleep is one of the basic and indispensable daily life activities that affect the quality of life and health of individuals and is a concept with physiological, psychological and social dimensions. In the literature, sleep difficulties and problems have begun to be investigated in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and have not been found in national publications. In these children, sleep quality, strengths and disorders and a study evaluating this variation on a scale have not been found. For this reason, our study will be done in order to determine the factors affecting sleep and sleep in children with cancer and to show the effect of exercise on these factors.
This study will examine the existence and severity of depression and anxiety in patients undergoing chemotherapy at RUMC. Patients currently undergoing initial chemotherapy cycle will be compared to patients undergoing a subsequent chemotherapy cycle. Data will then be collected using standardized depression and anxiety scales to assess if these comorbidities exist and to what severity level. Data already collected for depression and anxiety in patients with chronic, but not cancer, illness will be used as a control. The participants will be screened for signs of psychological distress using three self administered questionnaires: the Generalized Anxiety Disorder 7 item Scale (GAD7) and Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ9). Demographic information about the participants, including medical and psychiatric history, will also be gathered from their medical records.
The participants in the study are patients who undergo surgery to damaged nerve transmission and processing system in the nervous system as part of the routine clinical treatment that will not be affected by the proposed study. Patients who are candidates for procedures are referred from all over the country and undergo a multidisciplinary evaluation in the framework of the Palliative Pain Management Clinic, which operates exclusively in Israel at the Sourasky Medical Center in Tel Aviv.
The main purpose of this study is to pilot a real time electronic consultation with an Oncogeriatric Information Team (OGIT) located at Moffitt using Total Cancer Care (TCC). Investigators want to see for which type of patients this information is the most useful, and work out the practical ways of making this process work.
This is a clincial validation study of a dried blood spot (DBS) method for the analysis of immunosuppressive and antifungal agents currently subject of therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) in a pediatric population. The primary goal is to clinically validate a finger prick DBS method compared to conventional venous sampling for the analysis of 5 immunosuppressive and 4 azole antifungal drugs in the pediatric population. Secondairy goals include feasibility of the finger prick DBS method in the target population, to design an inventory of costs that will be incurred in future health-economic analyses and to construct a population PK model based on the available data collected for the primariy goal.
The purpose of this study is to assess patients' understanding of clinical trials and to help researchers understand which areas of the informed consent need better explanation for future cancer clinical trial patients.
